We spent a lovely spring break in White Sheep with two young children. There are a huge number of positives: it's quite centrally located in Suffolk, with Southwold, Dunwich, Snape Maltings and Framlingham all within ~15–20 minutes' drive, and a lovely deli about 50 yards away. The cottage strikes a nice balance in its decor; it's smart and characterful enough...

Management response:

Thank you Aidan and family for your lovely review and for being great guests. Come back soon!

We stayed at White Sheep Cottage for 9 nights over Christmas and it was a wonderful stay. The cottage had everything we needed and we felt very at home. It's very well equipped and very comfortable and it accommodated 5 adults perfectly. The village location is absolutely beautiful and the cold frosty mornings only added to the scene, it's exactly...

Management response:

Thanks Chay, thanks Jane, for being such great guests. I think you left behind some fans in the village......come back soon!

Newly married, my wife and I were looking forward to a restful and recuperative stay at White Sheep Cottage after the whirlwind of activity surrounding our wedding. We were not to be disappointed. It's a quiet, peaceful, place to stay in a beautiful village. It has a comprehensively equipped kitchen (great for Sunday roasts) and the bedrooms are really cosy...

Management response:

Glad to have you back and delighted you came to White Sheep for your honeymoon! Look forward to welcoming you again in the future....might there even be the patter of tiny feet....kids love the wildlife garden and the cosy cabin twin (parents last summer reported their girls asking if they could please go to bed, they loved it so much!)

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Low and mid-season short breaks are generally 3 night weekends from Friday to Monday, and 4 night midweek breaks from Monday to Friday. However it is worth asking if I can accommodate a different length of stay outside peak seasons, subject to availability of housekeeping staff. Please ask about availability. I ask for a 20% deposit on booking with the balance, and a £250 Good Housekeeping deposit, payable 6 weeks prior to arrival. Guests must also complete a booking form and provide passport or driving licence copies for each guest.
